There is a lot to thank Australia for – flat whites, Margot Robbie, Bluey, and Tim Tams. But nothing deserves our appreciation more than the country’s home-grown beauty brands.

Aussie-born beauty is all about simple but effective formulations, powerful botanical ingredients, pared-back beauty regimes, and expert sun protection.

With so many Australian beauty brands having launched over the last decade, you are spoilt for choice when it comes to which products to introduce to your routine. To help you discover what’s worth investing in, we’ve compiled a list of Australia’s best beauty exports.

Ultra Violette’s Supreme Screen is a moisturiser, primer, and high-level SPF in one. This universal crowd-pleaser protects, hydrates, and primes all skin types, thanks to its lightweight, skin-enriching formula. Its key ingredient is Kakadu plum, a vitamin C-rich antioxidant fruit extract that helps protect the skin from free radical damage. Peptide Dragosine is included to hydrate the skin and shield it from UVA, UVB, and blue light exposure. Promising no tell-tale white cast, the Supreme Screen leaves the skin feeling soft and refreshed while perfectly priming the complexion for makeup application.

Alpha-H Skincare Liquid Gold with 5% Glycolic Acid

Liquid Gold combines the benefits of a toner, exfoliator, serum, and moisturiser in one impressive formula. The liquid exfoliant is formulated with 5% glycolic acid, to lift dead skin cells and penetrate deep within pores to eradicate spot-causing bacteria; glycerin, to moisturise the skin; and liquorice root extract to protect against environmental aggressors. The bestselling Liquid Gold also lowers the skin’s pH from 5.5 to around 3, stimulating cellular activity to accelerate the repair and renewal processes. It also boosts the production of elastin and collagen, while its resurfacing properties help to reduce the appearance of post-blemish scars, dark spots, brown patches, delivering a luminous, even toned, and healthy complexion.

Bread Hair-Oil Everyday Gloss

Perfect for 3c to 4a hair, Bread’s multi-purpose, strawberry scented hair oil floods the hair with hydration to deliver soft, dewy curls and coils. It is enriched with a hydrating blend of Australian Kakadu plum, safflower oil, and caprylic/capric triglycerides, which work together to both maintain collagen and elastin levels in your scalp and hair, keeping locks soft and supple, and strengthen your hair follicle, preventing hair from breaking and shedding. Designed to work well with coloured hair and both high and low-porosity hair, this non-greasy, multi-tasking oil can also be used in between washes to boost shine and minimise frizz.

It delivers extreme hydration to extremely dry and chapped lips, skin patches, cuticles, elbows, and other areas of the body in need of nourishment.

Grown Alchemist Anti-Pollution Primer

This bestselling Anti-Pollution Primer is a lightweight, silicone-free, and detoxifying primer that glides on the skin to instantly blur pores and mattify the look of skin. Reishi mushroom and ashwagandha support the skin barrier, while an anti-pollution shield complex acts as a physical barrier between the skin and blue light, allowing your skin to function normally. A prebiotic-peptide helps to ensure a more balanced surface, supporting the natural epidermal barrier function to protect against external aggressors and reduce the risk of water loss.

Sand & Sky Purifying Pink Clay Mask

Sand & Sky’s Purifying Pink Clay Mask effectively lifts impurities and pollutants from the skin to deliver a radiant, more balanced-looking complexion.

Suitable for all skin types, Face Hero is lightweight enough for compromised or oily skins, and restorative enough for very dry, dehydrated, or mature skin.

Vida Glow Natural Marine Collagen

Vida Glow’s Natural Marine Collagen is a collagen peptide supplement made from sustainably sourced marine collagen. This type of collagen can be absorbed 1.5 times more efficiently than collagen from other sources, thanks to the smaller size of its peptides. When integrated into your daily routine, it has been clinically proven to smooth fine lines and wrinkles, increase skin firmness, and enhance skin elasticity. Beyond skin benefits, it also thickens hair and strengthens nails.

Skinstitut Moisture Defence Normal Skin

Formulated for use on both the face and body, Skinstitut’s Glycolic Scrub 14% is a deep and invigorating cleanser that provides chemical and physical exfoliation. Enriched with glycolic acid, jojoba beads, and tea tree oil, it removes impurities and treat congestion, refine skin texture, and promote healthy cell renewal.

The result is clearer, healthier skin that is hydrated, plump, and better protected against the development of blemishes, acne, and blackheads.

Cold pressed sweet almond oil replenishes moisture, while vitamin E helps to gradually fade scars and stretch marks over time.

Straand Crown Fix Scalp Serum

This hydrating and protective scalp treatment is designed to relieve scalp stress caused by several factors, which can include braids, cornrows, hot tools, bleaches, and permanent colour treatments, as well as scalp conditions, including dry skin, itchiness, and dandruff.
